Isco AND £72 million for Paul Pogba? Yes, please!


Real Madrid have reportedly offered Isco plus £72 million in return for Paul Pogba – and Manchester United would be stupid not to accept.

Manchester United have been handed a sensational offer by Real Madrid for their star man, Paul Pogba.

The Frenchman played for various youth sides at Old Trafford and made a handful of appearances for the first team before leaving to join Juventus on a free transfer in 2012.

Pogba quickly rose to become one of the very best midfielders in the world while at his new club, prompting United to sign him back for a then-world record fee of £89 million in 2016.

However, although Pogba has had some good moments since returning to Old Trafford, many would agree that he has failed to live up to his enormous price tag.

The 26-year-old’s agent Mino Raiola has candidly stated that his client is unsatisfied with his treatment at United and wants to leave this summer.

Real Madrid have been interested in Pogba for some time now, and according to Spanish outlet Mundo Deportivo, have made United an offer that could prove difficult to resist.

The La Liga giants are willing to hand over Isco to the Red Devils plus £72 million in what would easily be the most high-profile swap deal in recent memory.

Isco is a phenomenal player who would instantly improve this lacklustre United side with his creativity and eye for goal at attacking midfield.

Unlike Pogba, the Spaniard doesn’t have an ego and would stay out of the headlines while focusing on improving his game on the pitch.

If United were indeed to hand over Pogba to Madrid in return for Isco, they would be ridding themselves of a problematic player for one who could lead them to glory.

The £72 million they would receive on top of this could also go towards signing a world-class centre-back, which would revitalise United’s woeful defence.

All in all, this would be a terrific deal for all parties involved. Let’s just hope that United realise this before the transfer window closes – because an opportunity like this won’t come again any time soon.
